Study on tagging behaviour on Flickr

Pauline Rafferty and Rob Hidderley are currently working on a small scale study of tagging behaviour on Flickr, using Jakobson’s model of communicative functions as a framework through which to analyse the empirical data. The aim of the project is to determine whether tags assigned to images are informational in function, or appear to be operating in respect to other communicative functions.

Pauline is an ISKO UK member and we hope to hear more about this study at the next ISKO UK open meeting in September.
